When I visited this bar for the first time, I could really forget a din outside. Smart interior and very friendly staffs. Second time, there plays live music and the band was awesome. A lot of choice of drink with decent price. I only ate a pizza and it was fair but definitely want to come back soon!

Well I've been coming to Bernie's for several years and have always used it as my go-to restaurant for Western comfort food and a welcome service. However my more recent visits have seen a rapid decline in what has made them great. What used to be decent portions have shrunk considerably and the quality of food certainly reduced. A shepherds...

We found this Irish bar / restaurant by chance during a recent stroll in Saigon. We went in and had a small lunch and a beer. The food was so good we returned that evening for dinner with 2 additonal friends. We were not disappointed - food was excellent and the staff were very friendly and efficient.

The moment I walked in I felt welcome. The place is beautiful. That isn't why it is great. The real Mashed Potatoes and fresh tuna sandwich were amazing.

This was a good irish bar with a very friendly owner who creates a family atmosphere and welcomes all to the bar. Good food and plenty of whisky with a lively crowd and sports on tv. a good mid-week spot for pre- post-dinner drinks

We found this place after a walk around Saigon and had such a fun time we returned again before we left. The atmosphere was great, a mix of locals, expats and travellers. Fun staff and even some live music. It does give a good Irish vibe. The thing I struggled with was the smoke. Been to a lot of bars... More

It had been a while since I ate here last. Previously the food had been pretty good, mainly comfort food, but last night was just truly awful. I ordered fish & chips. The batter was soggy and the chips were the size of a Hummer and they were undercooked and hard. They tried to rectify the fish by putting it... More

Had a drink here, but no food. Staff are all very friendly and service is good. There was a live band playing, who were good, and a regular sang one song with them. Full of travellers and ex-pats, with a friendly atmosphere. Good choice of beer, with Irish imports like Guinness and Kilkenny (more expensive than the local beers, but... More
